Toshitaka Oohashi, Department of Molecular Biology and Biochemistry
Okayama University, Japan
The hyaluronan and proteoglycan binding link proteins are key molecules in the formation and control of two types of perineuronal matrices in the CNS, the perineuronal nets and the specialized extracellular matrix at the node of Ranvier.
The physiological role of the link protein Bral1 in the perinodal matrix will be discussed.
